Everyone experiences anxiety at some point, but for some the anxiety is so frequent or intense that it interferes with their lives or even triggers panic attacks. I use Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) to help my clients get a sense of control over their own anxiety. We collaborate to learn skills to reduce the frequency or intensity of the anxious feelings, to tolerate the anxiety when it does occur so they can still function through it, and to practice habits that reduce stress and improve general mental health.

There is an almost infinite list of causes for anxiety and stress, probably a few more if you live in a metropolitan area. Maybe your anxiety is decades old from trauma, family of origin, or chemically related. Perhaps it's situational and can be attributed to a recently suffered trauma, is work related, or relationship related. When you are stressed out or anxious, your brain doesn't function optimally. Instead, it functions in crisis mode and impairs your decision making ability and leaves you feeling too drained for the rest of your life. I will help you to regain your control by giving you concrete strategies and tools to manage them.

Anxiety can be difficult for some to identify and sometimes it's hard to distinguish anxiety from depression. Anxiety and depression can be so closely knit that teasing them apart can be the first step towards generating understanding and emotional change. I will work collaboratively with you to understand what your personal and unique experience is with your anxiety. We will explore your history and make links between your past and present to help increase awareness and develop new ways of coping with your anxiety. My style is warm, empathic, and collaborative and I will work hard to help you better understand and manage your anxiety.

These days, many of us live with a good deal of anxiety and stress in our daily lives. My way of working with both conditions is to help bring relief to the immediate distressing symptoms (worry, panic, fear, etc) as well as to address and heal their underlying root causes. I help clients access their own self-regulating, inner resources to find a sense of calm in themselves, as well as creating a safe place for them to gently "feel into" and release the emotions behind the anxious tension.

While most treatment approaches for anxiety and stress are effective on the surface, they don’t treat the real problem. Mantras, deep breathing, and rational dialogues about your fear being irrational rarely work---for most people don’t believe it or you! Imagine if you can trick the brain into changing without you telling your conscious mind that you are changing it? Problem with anxiety and stress is that the brain in this state knows you want to change it and it resists. Contact Kevin@kevinfleminphd.com for the ultimate stress and anxiety solution that will literally change your brain's autonomic nervous system patterns while you sit on your butt. 877-606-6161.

Anxiety Counselor

Licensed Psychotherapist

Anxiety and stress are felt when life overwhelms the capacity to experience. When events are too much to bear, too much to make sense of, or tolerate, we feel stress or anxiety. If unable to be with challenging life events we are left in this anxious state, held hostage by what cannot be digested or made sense of. I help people decrease stress and anxiety by increasing their ability to more fully inhabit themselves and be with their own experiences so that events of the past and present can be lived in and more comfortably felt. A sense of self, self-confidence, capacity, and control is restored.

Anxiety and stress are so prevalent in today's society. I can help you gather the tools you need to successfully handle those moments when you feel overwhelmed - even if those moments seem like they are all the time. I utilize psychodynamic and/or a cognitive behavioral approach to treating anxiety and stress. I also treat Obsessive Compulsive Disorder using Exposure and Response Prevention.

Anxiety Counselor

Erika Shershun, MA, MFT

Somatic Psychotherapist

Within driving distance of Kentfield

When we feel anxious, overwhelmed or stressed we're often experiancing fear; fear of a future outcome that is not aligned with our desires or our sense of safety. When we dwell on the future (or past) we're not available for the present, where creativity, spontaneity and joy reside. Chronic stress and anxiety also takes a toll on our health, and can result in behaviors ranging from anger, aggression and defensiveness to withdrawal and depression, which in turn negatively impact our relationships and overall wellbeing. I will guide you in forming a sense grounding, support and of safety in your own skin, quieting the chronic worry or fear, and replacing it with more presence, calm and ease.

With therapy, we work towards having a better relationship to anxiety, which eventually changes the anxiety itself. Using mindful awareness of the body and thoughts, and bringing in compassion, you can learn how to respond differently to fear and stress. You can override your instinctual responses to stress by finding calm - even if not in the moment initially - and eventually create new mental pathways of more tolerance and ease in difficult experiences.

Anxiety Counselor

Often, anxiety comes up because of a narrative of negative or repetitive thoughts. These thoughts are usually related to an idea about the past or the future. Once you are aware of your thoughts patterns you can develop tools to manage these thoughts to reduce and even eliminate anxiety. I will teach you Cognitive Behavioral Techniques and Stress Management Exercises to help with this process. Some clients also benefit from having an Emotional Support Animal as part of their treatment plan. I structure each treatment plan according to each client's individual needs.

Anxiety Counselor

Glenn Fleisch, Ph.D., MFT

Licensed psychotherapist

Anxiety and stress are most common conditions that result in physical ailments, disease and impairment in living. I show you how to use the whole body to both contain stress responses and to find a more solid, stable foundation with which to process anxious and stressed places. These are usually aspects of ourselves that do not feel safe or supported- so grounding in the whole body, breathing, letting the body unwind tension allows for a way to not get caught up in these stress patterns. Rather we then learn how to enter into the places of anxiety/stress- so that these parts of ourselves feel safe to experience, express and release what they have been carrying- including unresolved traumas.

You're not crazy, but anxiety can make you feel that way. Do you or your child worry about things a great deal, even when you know it is not reasonable? Do you or your child find yourself unable to relax? Do you or your child become easily angered or frustrated? Do you or your child have sleeping problems, digestive concerns, and cannot sit still? If you've answered "yes" to any of these questions, you may want to consult with an anxiety therapist like myself to determine if you're suffering from anxiety, so you can receive the therapy you deserve.

It can feel scary and deeply lonesome to struggle with anxiety stress. I work with clients navigating acute symptoms of anxiety including negative self-talk, cyclical and catastrophic thought patterns, repetitive behaviors, loss of sleep, and difficulty with time management. When appropriate, I employ concrete CBT tools to aid in some immediate relief in tandem with traditional and interpersonal talk therapy to explore the root of the anxiety and provide long-term relief. My goal is to help individuals build a "tool box" of anxiety and stress management tools they can carry with them throughout their lives.
